Thanksgiving Wings

wingsandbeerHappy Thanksgiving beer blog followers! All 7 of you!

Enjoy Thanksgiving with some good eats, good family, good games and great beers! When you’re all done with Turkey and pie and have awoken from your nap, you’ll need some board games, beers and wings. Here’s my recipe for wings!

Mike’s Crazy-Awesome Wings

  • 24 Chicken wings, thawed
  • 2 sleeves of saltine crackers
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1tsp. black pepper
  • 1tsp. paprika
  • 1tsp. chilli powder
  • 1tsp. onion powder
  • 1tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 cup of Frank’s Buffalo wing sauce
  • hot sauce (optional)
  1. Beat eggs and milk in a bowl and then set that stuff aside.
  2. Crush the crackers and mix into another bowl with pepper, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder. Set that bowl aside too.
  3. You should probably be listening to some Led Zeppelin while you do this. Also, it helps to crack open your favorite beverage while you’re cooking.
  4. Dry off all the wings with a paper towel. Put that cup of flour and the wings in a big baggie. Close it and shake it up until all the wings are coated with flour.
  5. In an electric skillet, fill it with oil (peanut or vegetable) and heat to 325 degrees. the wings should be about 1/2 submerged.
  6. One by one, Dip each wing in the eggs and milk then roll them in the cracker mix. Gently place in oil. This will be hella-messy.
  7. Cover the wings as they cook. Flip them after about 7 minutes or if they start to brown too quickly. About 20 minutes total cook time depending on the size of the wings. Make sure to check for doneness with one wing. You don’t want undercooked wings. That will ruin your day.
  8. Crack open another beverage. This is important. It helps with the uh, you know, artistry or the uh… whatever.
  9. With tongs, pull out each wing and place on paper towels to dry.
  10. Dip each wing in the Frank’s sauce plus any other sauce you want. (Try some soy sauce and honey, or Worcestershire and some jalapeno peppers in there too if you want.)
  11. Serve immediately with some ranch or blue cheese dressing and some celery and/or carrots.
  12. Switch that Led Zeppelin over to some Parliament Funkadelic and get funky.
